08/07/2012 Yaz Lawsuit 400 Million Settlement: Bayer’s controversial oral contraceptive Yaz has been in the midst of settlement talks for months. The latest update from Bloomberg Businessweek sites the settlements of Yaz Lawsuit claims as rising to $402.6 million. The common trend among those Yaz Lawsuit cases settling are charges of blood clot conditions suffered while on the birth control. Bayer has acknowledged that they have currently paid this large amount for many blood clot cases at the average amount of $212,000 per case.
The number of Yaz Lawsuit and Yasmin Lawsuit cases settled has combined to almost 2,000. The reason for the Yaz Lawsuit against Bayer includes serious blood clot conditions caused by a hormone within both Yaz and Yasmin. The blood clots have been alleged within the Yaz Lawsuit to cause an entire host of problems including strokes, heart attacks and lifelong blood thinning treatments.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released safety warnings similar to the claims that are now listed in Yaz Lawsuit trial documents including the risk of pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). These conditions can cause lifelong treatment of blood thinning drugs for those affected. Additionally, a PE or DVT could be life-threatening. The majority of Yaz Lawsuit cases already settled have included plaintiffs who suffered from a PE or DVT. While the settlement phase for Yaz Lawsuit cases as well as Yasmin Lawsuit case are continuing, there is still a narrow window of time to file a new Yaz Lawsuit.
